Subject: Missing footage
Thirteen minutes are missing from this print, which are a lot considering the original runtime was only 63 minutes. This makes it questionable if downloading is worth it except for the most diehard Lugosi fans.

Subject: Parts missing
The overall quality of the film - visually, at least - is pretty good; I'm assuming there is at least one missing scene - Barton goes to have some Chinese writing on a paper translated and then we immediately cut to a scene where the person who he went to is telling someone else that there was a part of the paper missing.
At least I HOPE the scene in between is missing - otherwise the movie is even worse than I first thought.
Bela Lugosi playing a Chinese character? A stretch to begin with, but then he does nothing to change his Hungarian accent.
The copy I downloaded was timed at @50 minutes and ended abruptly as well, in the middle of a scene in a taxi cab. If this movie were a game of Clue, I'd have to say it was Bela Lugosi, in the taxi, with a potato.

Subject: Not Bad
The film its self is not too bad for its type only let down by quality.

Give it a watch for the inscrutable Bela L.

The sound quality is rather noisy and the end is abrupt, to say the least, some bad film edits. the runtime is quoted as 50 mins & imdb reckons at 63 mins!
